From SEBoK
Jump to: navigation, search

This minor update was released in April 2013. It updated many topic articles and glossary articles. Changes included:

  • Fourteen topic articles were updated in Parts 1, 2, 3, and 6, for the purpose of expanding or improving the explanation of the topic, or in some cases to add new references.
  • Sixteen glossary terms were updated and two new glossary terms were added.
  • The Acknowledgements page was updated to reflect the significantly revised governance structure for the SEBoK, which added many new contributors in varying roles.
  • The Main Page and other Quicklinks pages were modified to reflect the new version.
  • The SEBoK Evolution article formerly in SEBoK v. 1.1 Introduction was deleted, being replaced by an updated version, being this Editor's Note article.

Micro updates of SEBoK v. 1.1 are described below. The authors and Editors who contributed directly to these versions are outlined below.

SEBoK Version 1.1.1

This micro update was released in June 2013. It was primarily focused on updates to the wiki structure and features. Changes included:

  • Version numbers were removed from page titles to improve maintenance of links.
  • Corrections were made to the Acknowledgements.
  • The 'Cite This Page' feature was revised and improved.
  • A few references were updated, notably in the Safety Engineering article.
  • Meta-tags were improved to increase visibility to search engines.
  • Wiki navigational features - especially breadcrumbs - were improved.
  • A counter was added to record PDF downloads.

SEBoK Version 1.1.2

This micro updated was released in August 2013. It primarily focuses on updates to the wiki structure and features, including:

  • Version numbers were removed from page titles to improve maintenance of links
  • To reflect the governance of the SEBoK and oversight through the Editorial Board, a new page was added called Meet the Editors.
  • A few references have been updated, notably in the Safety Engineering article.

The most significant change for this release was not to SEBoK v. 1.1.2 itself, but the release of a companion wiki, the SEBoK Sandbox, which provided new collaborative opportunities to the community. In the Sandbox, members of the community could edit or comment on existing SEBoK articles as well as request the creation of new SEBoK articles. The Sandbox is overseen by the Editorial Board. For more information, please visit the Sandbox.

SEBoK v. 1.1 Authors

Authoring for v. 1.1 was done by the Editorial Board.

SEBoK v. 1.1 Editorial Board

SEBoK v. 1.0 was developed using an author team model. SEBoK v. 1.1 was the first version which was built using the Editorial Board model.
